A Little Bit of This and a Little Bit of That.....

Good morning to you!  Today is going to be another busy day as Cortney and I head out to the social security office.  Later today our village hosts our annual Fourth of July parade and fireworks show.  (Weather permitting!) Even though I live literally a couple of miles from Chicago, it sometimes has that small town feel to it, which I love. :) And since I just bought a new camera....yep I did!  I am anxious for the photo ops! (I'll tell you about it in my next post since I am on a time crunch at the moment!) 
I have a card to share with you that was created using this beautiful sentiment from JustRite/Becca Feekin's Kit Club.  It was stamped in Versarmark and embossed in black. The card base used a Spellbinder's die.  I did a bit of soft airbrushing around the edges with my Copic marker. I had these gorgeous stickers in my stash and simply placed them on the card.  I added a pretty silk bow from the Stamp Simply store and voila! My card was complete!
And of course I've been taking pictures like a mad woman! I won't bore you with all of them....but here are a few....
My oldest dog Skippers...
I love that I can get this close and get such clear photos with this camera!
And my silly pup, Myla. She is quite the character let me tell you!
And lastly, my daisies.  They seem to have doubled in size this year!
Off I go! Wish us luck that we aren't camped out all day there! LOL!
Have a very happy Fourth of July!!

Love the card. The pictures are great. Love your dogs. Oh how I know that SS office. Sure takes patience. I have found making an appointment helps a lot.

Beautiful card. Love your photos. I remember when I first bought my camera (years ago now) and I was going around looking for anything and everything to take pictures of. Looking forward to hearing about what you got.
